Question Hey Unfedfat! Clear Your PM Box!

Hi Adam. Have a couple questions for you, as apparently you are still active as of 7/16.

So this place is dead. Not a question, but bear with me.

As lifeless as it is, would you consider handing proper admin privileges over to one of the users, namely me? I mean, I doubt I can make anything worse than it is now. I've been here for 8+ years, why would I want to hurt my first forum? Just throwing that idea out there.

Second, what is Old Pig Networks?

Finally, what's with all these hundreds of new members each day that NEVER POST ANYTHING?! If you guys are reading this and want to enlighten me, please do. Even if you don't want to. I don't care if you just say, "dsoijfrjhg."


(This is directed back at Adam)
At the very least, show some sign of life! I'm sure those that are still around want to hear from you. Your last post was over 5 years ago, seriously.

Thanks!

Hey Bubba,

I hope you get a reply. I've tried this several times in the past, even while Adam was actively on the site. He's never answered me. I'm thinking Unfedfat is no longer Adam, but that is just a guess.

There is SOOO much spamming here, it's not even funny. I've tried to keep up with deleting all the spam. Thankfully "Adam" added a feature that doesn't allow anyone new from posting until it is accepted by a Mod. This takes care of the visible spam on the forum, but there are hundreds and hundreds of posts (if not 1,000's) in that queue. I've just about given up cleaning that out in the past month or so.

Anyway, good luck with contacting and getting a reply back from Adam or "Adam".

We'll see how it goes, but I'm sure you're right.

That's handy, except it also blocks any legit new users.... How ya gonna tell the difference until after they've spammed?

That's a problem too as I am NOT going to be searching each post to figure out which are legit when each day the bots/spammers are making hundreds of posts. It's unbelievable...

Yeah, and you shouldn't have to. There's a few simple things that can be used at registration to block bots altogether, from a captcha to simple arithmetic. There's no way this forum can make a comeback until that's fixed.

It's been suggested that something of that nature be implemented...long ago when Adam was around.
